"I didn't come to New York planning to hang out with a guy named Sal from Brooklyn but I'm glad I got to." is what a recent visitor from Oregon told me.

I'm a native New Yorker who has lived and worked in NYC for more than 40 years.  I have a degree in history, great local knowledge and I love having fun.  Two years ago I decided to become a tour guide so I could share all the wonders of the city I love with others.  I offer a variety of unforgettable walking, private and custom tours.
